We have received tons of enrollment forms and extended day care applications and have been working extremely hard to upload them in MyProcare. We are now asking that all families login to their accounts to verify what is due and what is complete by following these simple instructions.

  • For our school-day only students, you will look in the immunizations icon to see what forms, if any, are outstanding or if your child is still due for any immunizations which are required for entry in preschool.
  • For our extended day care families, after completing the above step, to verify day care scheduling, go to the schedule icon and view which times and days your child has been signed up for.
  • For ALL families, please plan on bringing all outstanding forms to orientation or sooner.

From this parent portal you have access to many tools so please root around once you've completed the verification process. Please notify us immediately with questions or to report inaccuracies in scheduling.

PLEASE NOTE: Only extended day care schedules are imported into Procare, not preschool classroom times.

  • AM II and PM I sessions are now full.
  • PM II session is full on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Consent Forms Due!

  • All Crown Families that submitted applications for Extended Day Care should have received a verification email. Please make sure you have submitted a Behavior & Medical Form, which is mandatory for Extended Day Care on the first day of school. We will try and notify families this week and next if we are missing one for your child.
  • If you have submitted your enrollment paperwork but haven't yet applied for Extended Day Care, we still have spots available. Please submit an application and consent form as soon as possible. Please note that only those with completed enrollment packages will be considered and those needing full-time Ext-Day Care will be given preference.

Billing Info

  • All Preschool deposits made during enrollment will be applied towards the prorated August tuition so if you are preschool-day only, you will not receive an invoice until Sept. 1.
  • Extended Day Care will be billed a prorated amount on the first day of school and is due before Sept. 1.

We've been working over the summer to improve our online presence and to make sure our families can access everything they need from our website. If you haven't been lately, check it out! Just click on "Crown Preschool Website" to be redirected there.

We made several improvements to the Parent Portal section where now you can access absence request forms, extended day care applications, the weekly newsletter and lunch program info.

If you have any suggestions, we're always listening!

Interested in free or reduced lunches for your child? At Crown, all students will either bring, purchase or receive free lunch this year so please review the information below to see if you qualify.
